Where She Went by Kelly Simmons

What happens when your worst fear comes true?

Her only daughter has just gone away to college, and Maggie O'Farrell knows she's turning into one of those helicopter parents she used to mock. Worrying constantly, texting more than she should, even occasionally dropping by the campus "just to say hi." But Maggie can't shake the feeling that something terrible is about to happen to Emma. And then, just as Maggie starts to relax, her daughter disappears.

The clues are disturbing. An empty dorm room where Emma was supposedly living. A mysterious boy described as Future Husband in her phone. Dormmates who seem more sinister than friendly. As Maggie combs over the campus looking for signs of her daughter, she learns more about Emma's life than she ever thought possible.

Kelly Simmons delivers another gripping novel in Where She Went, an unforgettable story of letting go and the secrets that surface when the person keeping them is gone.


About The Author

My fifth novel WHERE SHE WENT will be published in the fall of 2019! It also sold in an audio auction (sounds noisy, doesn't it??) and is already gleaning interest from TV/film pre-publication. So please cross your ✌️ or even 🙏 with me! I accept all good wishes and 🍀 and good juju! In the meantime I hope you'll add it to your wanna read stack. Or my best-selling book, ONE MORE DAY to your shopping bag, maybe?

My books have been applauded by bestselling authors like Megan Abbott, Caroline Leavitt, and Sarah Pekkanen. They've been hailed as "great titles for book groups who love strong female characters" by the Library Journal. Publishers Weekly called my first novel, Standing Still "An electrifying debut" in its starred review. Even Kirkus likes me! Maybe you'd enjoy discovering a new-to-you author?

I've visited hundreds and hundreds of book clubs via Google Hangouts or in person. I'd love to meet with yours.

My Review

I was quickly looking for answers here, and trying to put myself in the shoes of a mother with her daughter missing, really unimaginable!
This story did keep my attention, and I kept thinking the worse! It could have come for the pages of the daily news, it is similar to what has happened on a national level.
The answers do come, and we walk in both the daughter’s and mother’s shoes, and hope for the best.
Emma is one brave girl, spunky for a freshman, and trying to fit into life here, but she is going alone into a dark world.
This quickly became a page turner as I looked for answers, and I so want the good to overcome evil!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Sourcebooks Landmark, and was not required to give a positive review.
